VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 30, 2016

Our Bear family spent a week of summer vacation in this beautiful Vail condo – the perfect retreat for our Bear family. We enjoyed the comfortable open living space and a very accommodating kitchen, making it convenient for cooking meals and enjoying each others' company. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has two beds and a trundle, a major plus for our three cubs. The third full bathroom was especially nice for our family of five, and was also very convenient when we had guests. We appreciated many other family-friendly features, including toys for the cubs and a DVD player. One of the unique features of this condo is that it sits right on the beautiful Gore Creek, just steps from the back deck where we relaxed as we enjoyed the sounds of the creek and the gorgeous view - it is one of the most peaceful locations we’ve experienced while on vacation! The kids never tired of tubing in the creek (Tip: make sure to bring water shoes in the summertime!) The condo is situated in an ideal location in Vail Village, within a short walking distance to the best restaurants, shopping and parks. The owner was a pleasure ensuring we had a great experience. This Bear family had a truly memorable vacation in this exceptional condo and we thank the owners for an amazing experience! We hope to come back!

Apartment was great, comfortable, very nicely decorated and equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect for skiing, just about 6 blocks away from Vail's gondola. We left our skis and boots overnight by the lifts, since we thought it was too much to carry back and forth. The two bedrooms are nicely decorated. There is a trundle bed coming out in the kids room which allowed each 3 kids to have a bed each. It was ok for 3, but no space left at all in their bedroom. The view from every bedroom and living room is stunning since the apartment is at ground level on a beautiful creek. You can even hear the sound of the water from inside. Kitchen is well equipped, it has lots of things, living room/dining room are large and very bright. Nice quiet building in excellent location. Owners are really nice and helpful. Would love to go back next year if we can!!!

The Amass' family have a beautiful condo and they are delightful to work with. Their oasis is very homey and they have everything you could possible need.

I would highly recommend this VRBO getaway. We will definitely stay here again.

Thanks again Bill and Lori for share your home with us.

Lovely private owner's condo in Vail

  • 5 of 5

The Amass' immaculate, fully furnished home is in the heart of Vail, overlooking

Gore Creek, with gorgeous views of the river and mountain from the living room and deck.

An easy 5 minute walk to the gondola, and all of Vail's shopping and restaurants within

walking distance; bus stops outside the front door that access Golden Peak and Lionshead

ski bases; underground parking included; cozy woodburning fireplace in the large living

room. Every amenity we would find in our own home makes this a perfect getaway

spot for winter skitrips or summer holidays.

Bill and Lorie Amass are a delightful couple and gracious hosts. We had a fabulous week,

and will certainly be back for more!

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a large 2 bedroom, three bathroom unit on the ground floor. The windows overlook the river that runs through Vail as well as the slopes. Making a fire and relaxing at the end of the ski day was a highlight. The unit felt private and we never did bother to pull the curtains in the living room.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the bedrooms are nice size. Especially appreciate the heated floors in the bathrooms.

The owner was available for any questions we had and checked up on us to make sure things were OK. His instructions to get to the condo and to get in were explicit so we had no trouble on our first day of arrival finding the place and and accessing the unit. We found the unit comfortable and clean.

Ski lifts are close enough to walk and bus service is right outside the door if going to Lionshead. Also the Vail transportation center is a short walk making a day at Beaver Creek by express bus a snap to get to.

Overall was a great vacation, would do it again!!

Gorgeous place! - delightful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at Bill & Lories' Talisman Condo for 10 days in January 2016, we can not fault our stay. The condo was spacious, well equipped, charming and in an ideal location. As it was our first time to Vail, Bill & Lorie went out of their way to make our stay perfect. We would definately return and have already recommended the condo to our friends.

Hidden Vail Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Just as the other reviewers have stated, this place is the perfect Vail location. I am reluctant to submit my review, as I want to keep this place a secret.

We are a family of 5, with 3 teenage boys. In the past we’ve stayed in resorts and hotels for our annual ski trips. We were tired of renting 2 rooms or spending a fortune on 2/3 bedroom suite. After extensive research, we came across this listing. The Tailsman condo totally exceeded our expectations. We were here over New Years Eve and saw the most amazing fireworks on the mountain.

*Location- Right across from the Solairs ice rink and right next door to the Sonnenalp Hotel (grab a drink Bully Ranch). It is a 5minute flat walk to the Vistabahn Gondola. If you can’t walk 5 minutes to the lift, then maybe you shouldn’t be skiing. We rented and stored our ski/snowboard gear at Ski Haus and Burton, which is located at the lift. I recommend Ski Haus for skiers, as they have very nice equipment and a GREAT staff. Burton is great for snowboarders. If you store at the lift you don’t have to walk or carry your gear. All the best dinning in Vail is a short 5minute walk (Mountain Standard, Sweet Basil, Four Season’s bar, Pepis, Russell’s and many more). If you want to go to Lionshead Village the bus runs right in front of the condo. You DO NOT need a car!

*The Condo- This condo has everything you could possible need. Bill and Lorie have thought of everything! They have nice kitchen equipment, glasses, dinnerware, and soft linens. We are linen snobs and once again they exceeded our expectations. They have humidifiers and heated blankets in each bedroom. The bathrooms are spacious and have heated floors. All 3 of our big teenage boys slept in the 2nd bedroom and were very comfy. One slept on the trundle and the others on the twin and double. There is plenty of room in the bedrooms and foyer to put all your “stuff”. The fireplace was lovely, and there was plenty of wood. They have Comcast cable, Apple TV and a Sonos music system, which we used each night. The view of Gore creek is stunning. We loved listening to the creek at night. They have a nice gas grill on the patio, which we used and worked great.

*The Owners- Bill and Lorie are wonderful to work with. They answered all my crazy questions promptly and with great detail. Bill provided detailed information via email that explained how to get to and into the condo. They have made a beautiful mountain home that is cozy, warm and comfortable!
